I have one question. Is there any chance for pilots who will be participate in the todays 2nd race of 23th SRCA season (and they will be succesfull and gain Licence 4, of course) for their start in the race of the VEC series on saturday? The deadline for sign up changes for VEC races is 48 hours before the race (by the rules). So it would have to be evaluated very quickly. Our pilots are prepared to pay season pass immediately after the decision of admins...
Thanks for your answer.

I'm afraid no,
48 hours before the VEC race would be Thursday at 5 and that's impossible to do.

Friday evening is the earliest time we can realistically make.

hi, small question for the weather conditions

can you tell us what is the weather station taken for Nola Race ? in order to check if some rain dops or shower are expected ?
for the real weather what is the plugin used ?
this kind : New Orleans, LA Hourly Forecast | Weather Underground

not a problem at all but the server race start hour is set on 3:00 PM not 2.00 Pm as mentionned in 1st post "Simulated Race Time: 14:00 - 15:30"
Hi, i'm i think I'm going to miss the wisper test ( and hope not the qualy) the energy went out, hope it returns quickly enogugh to race. Sorry!
I'm really sorry, I reached to qualify, but while qualifying the energy went out again, i imagine that, due i missed the warm up, i'm not allow to race. :( maybe next time. thank you!

Yeah we saw that you dropped out.

The problem is that the game does not allow anyone to enter if you miss the race start. We would not mind in your case but you have to be on the server when it switches to the race session.

Otherwise you won't be able to join.
